Not that this is a new idea - it's where a lot of the appeal of AAA devs going indie lies - but it's nice to remember that as annoying as the endless stream of Kickstarter projects are, and as big as the risks are for both developers and consumers, there's an upshoot to the whole thing. » 8/24/12 2:30am 8/24/12 2:30am
